Question about 2011 Kia Sorento 2.5

1 Answer

Is there a way to open my rear driver side door that is stuck shut? I can hear the actuators working but the door won't open from either the inside or out!

Not sure if it's the child safety lock but I don't remember ever engaging it. Whether it is or isn't, do I have to take it to a dealership?

A lock smith might be able to open it with a slim jim. But then you have to repair it. Taking all the inner workings out of the door and the door panel removal is not easy.

Door is loked on rear driver side want open


Won't open from outside? Won't open from inside? Equipped with power door locks? IF so, and won't open inside/outside, suspect stuck power door lock actuator. Sometimes working the lock/unlock button will make the door unlock. If not, the door will require disassembly from inside to determine what the failure may be. If the door needs disassembly while in the closed position, the paneling/clips may get damaged FYI

Drivers-side rear door won't engage-interior bell chimes constantly


Make sure the rear cargo lid is shut. Then if it still appears to be the door, then remove the jam switch in the door sill. The switches usually separate the wires when the door closes. You do not want to lose the wiring inside the doorjam and you do not want to leave a hole open either.
Tie a string on the wiring and/or tape the wiring to the doorjam until you can get a new switch. Tape the wire ends to prevet shorting.

2006 buick lucerne back doors won't open


My friend just had this problem and he reached in and pulled the inside door handle back as far as it would go, and then let it go, allowing it to 'snap' back. For some reason this fixed it. We have no idea why. By doing this on one door, both rear door locks freed up and the rear locks are now working. Before, both rear locks were stuck and you could not open the doors from the inside nor the outside. Not sure why it works, but maybe it will work for you!

AC blows hot air on the driver side and cold air on the passenger side


You may have a bad temperature door actuator motor on the drivers side. The actuator is what moves the temperature blend door and when it fails it usually moves the door all the way to the "hot" position. Sometimes if you shut the vehicle off for a bit then restart it the system will work fine for a while then the actuator will again swing the door all the way open or shut. I've replaced several of these actuators [both drivers side and passenger side] for similar problems.

Problem The rear hatch door will not unlock.


First, on the rear hatch, there is an actuator. On FX, when you close the trunk, it kind of **** the hatch closed all the way. When you press lock on the remote, this same actuator locks it as well.
Now,
1) when you unlock the car from the inside, go back there and press the button to open the hatch door manually, do you here any noises?
2) Close all doors, go back close to the hatch button and using the remote , lock the car and then unlock the car. you should hear a sound from the actuator locking and unlocking the lock on the rear hatch!

If you don't hear this, your actuator is inop.
Next step would be to check the fuses inside the car, on the left bottom driver side, and outside on the battery compartment.
It might be just a fuse.
If all fuses check ok, your actuator is most likely gone! Not ea expensive fix, just time consuming!

NOW, if you can hear the noises, then something is either broken inside the actuator or one of the cables is loose!
Hope that helps.
Also, what year and miles on your fx?

Door will not open on Buick Regal 95


you need a long screw driver, 10mm, phillips, torxs bits, trim panel popper and a pocket screw driver. if you can hear the actuator working thhere is a plastic replacement boot. pop up the switch cover from the fron. remove the rear reflector/light remover 10mm bolts(3). remove the torx and the open handle cover. then use the trim panel popper and remove the panel. then take the long screw driver and follow tow lock rods to the ned then twist the screw driver. two more rods need to be removed at the back. one has a adjustment. do adjusted it! then remove the torx 30 latch in the outer door part. remove the latch. then two torx 10 on the actuator remove them. at this point you will see a pastic rod that is not connected because the boot came off or the actuator is bad. install the new boot in the latch then take the place rod or the actuator push it into the boot at a 45deg. then swing it down. o ya make sure the gears are aligned top all of the way to the right and the bottom to the left i think. its the same as when you pull it a part. also do not over tightend the actuator to the latch. have fun
